September 21, 2005 Hackensack, NJ -- Master Bond has introduced a low viscosity adhesive/sealant with high flexibility called EP37-3FLF.

According to the company, this two-component, optically clear epoxy system features a forgiving one-to-one mix ratio by weight or volume. The company says the substance cures at room temperatures, and bonds well to a wide variety of substrates including metals, glass, ceramics, rubber, and many plastics. Bonds offer resistance to impact, shock, and severe thermal cycling, according to the company.

The company says that EP37-3FLF also can be employed as a potting and encapsulation compound. The company says the expoxy's low exotherm makes it an ideal material for large castings; the material also possesses superior electrical insulation properties and an exceptionally long working life.

EP37-3FLF has a service operating temperature range of -80°F to +250°F. Its volume resistivity is 1x 1014 ohm-cm at 75°F. It has a Shore D hardness of 30 and a tensile strength of 4,000 psi at 75°F. Peak exotherm for 200 gm mass is 40°C.

Master Bond EP37-3FLF is available in pint, quart, gallon, and 5 gallon kits. For ease of application, syringe applicators are also available. The substance can be stored at room temperature and has a shelf life of 1 year.
